According to a statement from Aeromexico, a passenger on a journey between Mexico City and Ciudad Juarez went into labor. The passenger gave birth on the plane, and she and her baby were transferred to a hospital to get medical care.

On March 15, 2024, while flying Aeromexico’s Boeing 737 (registration XA-AMA) on flight AM 113—a typical trip between Mexico City International Airport (MEX) and Ciudad Juarez International Airport (CJS) the passenger unexpectedly went into labor.

According to the airline’s statement, a doctor and a flight attendant who happened to be onboard the aircraft provided the passenger with quick treatment. After arriving at Ciudad Juárez International Airport, the traveler and her baby were taken immediately to a hospital for treatment. The airline also stated: “Aeromexico thanks the doctor for her professionalism, recognizes the extraordinary work of the flight attendants and pilot crew, and reiterates that the safety of clients and collaborators is our highest priority.”

Deliveries while flight are quite rare. A 2020 investigation by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that from 1929 to 2018, 74 newborns were reported to have been born on 73 commercial flights. Of them, 26% involved aircraft diversions because of emergency births, and 77% involved international travel.

Although the US FAA and Joint Aviation Authority have set requirements, the medical and first aid supplies provided on board are sometimes insufficient to handle in-flight deliveries.

It is noteworthy to note that most commercial airlines allow pregnant women to board their flights up until 36 weeks of gestation. Nonetheless, certain airlines might prohibit travel abroad during the early phases of pregnancy and ask for proof of gestational age. Women should speak with the relevant airline to learn about its specific rules.
